Water Tankers supplying the water have ended the strike they went for after agreeing in a meeting with district collector P I Sheik Pareeth on Sunday. The strike was in protest against closure of two water sources in Eloor recently. The tanker strike began at a time when Kerala Water Authority (KWA) announced a disruption in the water supply owing to maintenance work.

At the meeting, attended by KWA officials and representatives of water tankers, it was decided to provide additional quantity of water from KWA sources. As per the decision, water for 250 tankers will be supplied from the Aluva pump house and around 100 from the Choondi water treatment plant every day. At present, KWA is supplying water for 160 tankers from Aluva and 60 from Choondi.

At the meeting, the association raised the issue of food safety officials collecting samples from water meant for non-drinking purposes and taking action based on the result.”In order to ensure regular water supply, the district administration recently brought 10 tankers from Palakkad. If any crisis happens, these tankers will be pressed into service,” said Pareeth.
